It’s just the way things work out that I’m normally reading BBS on my music-streaming Mac, an old box running Leopard. (I haven’t updated it to newer because I crave the stable AppleScript and feature set of iTunes 9.2.1) A couple of days ago, BBS went semi-boink for me; checked the FAQ and yup, it’s my fault.
Not griping, just curious about the nature of code necessitating the new browser requirements. Is it mainly due to the Zocial svg-format font, or the new version of FontAwesome, or a need for rocket-surgery-grade JS, or some other aspect of making BBS ready for the next decade? (Well, griping a little…the next nearest CPU to-hand is a PC running Win7, and I like my Macs ; -) Or, put another way, what price the horror of coding – and serving – this beast?
